Chapter 1264: Family Rivalry (2)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At times, he would often feel rueful at having so many relatives in the large Mu family.
They shared the same blood as him, but what about that?
Sometimes, these people did not seem to be his relatives despite being so.
Each of them present here might seem to be concerned about him on the surface, but in fact?
They were only waiting for an opportunity to force him to abdicate his position!
Kinship did not matter a bit in the fame- and profit-centered family!
Since they disregarded his feelings, it was absurd of them to expect him to be sentimental about kinship.
He coldly declared, “Second uncle, I’ve never regretted all my decisions. I thought you know that!”
His uncle only snorted in reply; apparently, he was too angry to speak.
His aunt voiced out her worry from the side. “What will happen at the board meeting later, then? Are you really going to transfer your shares to your fourth uncle?”
“I’ll cancel the board meeting if second uncle promises me something.”
“What is it?”
His voice instantly lowered. “Properly discipline your subordinates! Since when can the people in the capital’s army be dispatched at the will of an outsider?”
Mu Linfeng’s heart stifled as he met his nephew in the eyes. He knew that the latter had seen through his motive!
He immediately nodded, sneering. “Fine! I promise you!”
“Well, I still have matters to attend, so I’ll leave first! The board meeting is adjourned. As for the issue with fourth uncle, I’ll leave that to second uncle to deal with! I don’t wish to fall out with you in the end over this matter and have to settle it with my methods!”
With that, he got up on his feet and walked toward the door. His footsteps suddenly paused and he slowly turned around.
“I still have one warning for you all, though.” His head turned to sweep his eyes across the crowd as he enunciated. “If anyone dares to touch them right under my nose, don’t blame me for being rude!”
He then strode out of the room without a backward glance.
As soon as the door slammed shut, Mu Shumin convulsed in rage. She stood up agitatedly with a flushed face, pointing in the direction where he had left.
Mu Linfeng remained silent in his seat.
He was utterly disappointed with his nephew!
It seemed that, now that the lad had become the Mu’s family head, he thought himself as all high and mighty and that he could soar on his own!
The gloomy faces of the older generation seated in the large office made the temperature there plummet instantly.
Mu Yancheng was seething with rage as well. He had nowhere to vent his anger from having been humiliated by his second brother earlier.
He turned to his uncle accusingly. “Second uncle, it’s not that I’m speaking ill of him, but that lad is really defiant!”
“Indeed. What Yazhe did today is really disappointing! Previously, I thought highly of him because he’s the person second brother has been grooming! Why is he now… acting all unreasonable?”
“That woman will really be a scourge if she stays! Look, second uncle; he even offended the Song family for the sake of her! It’ll be a disgrace for the Mu family if they come complaining to us!”
“That woman really has her means. I don’t know what ability she has to lead Yazhe by the nose and leave him so obsessed with her! She’s a scourge, indeed!”
“I heard that that woman has some means; if not, how did she get so many resources and get popular upon her debut? There must be someone backing her!”
